    Did anyone have this back in the day? I had one back in the 5th grade and it was BOMB! I played fatal fury, match of the millenium, metal slug , etc

    Funny how Capcom vs SNK came out first on this before DC. Sonic Pocket Adventure was a great game too.

    LOVED that shit back then. It was no doubt the best of the handhelds. Too bad it never caught on. I had the camo blue one.

    I was too poor. I did have a game gear, though.

    I didn't know anyone that had one. Neo Geo always had stuff we envied as kids but didn't even bother asking our parents because of the price.

    I had pretty much every game console growing up but even I knew I couldn't get away with asking for a system with $300-500 games.

    The Pocket seems to be really building a collectors market these days. I'm a Game Boy Advance guy myself though.

    A buddy of mine at school had one. I borrowed it from him and played Samurai Shodown 2 for weeks on it.

    This was the bomb! I use to play this off an emulator, and still want a new sequel.

    You mean "SNK vs Capcom" and yeah it was pretty good. Too bad the Neo Geo one was subpar.
